How long have you enjoyed photography? What got you into it?

I have always loved taking photographs of friends, family and nature. No matter where I went you could guarantee I had a camera. I spent my childhood in the Berkshires and started with a little Kodak 110 film camera when I was about 9 years old. Then it was off to the Pacific Northwest for my teens and twenties. This is where I really began to focus on skill and technique with my first Canon DSLR. Now I am in my early thirties and just moved to the great mitten state! I have moved so much in my life that photographs really helped me capture all the details and memories from so many different locations. When I started exploring outdoors more in the northwest I really just fell in love with what I saw and wanted to capture what my mind and heart felt in those mountains.

What kind of camera do you use, and what is your favorite lens?

I am still using my Canon EOS Rebel T1i but my favorite lens right now is Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

What type of photography do you most enjoy (e.g. portraiture, landscape, macro, street photography, nature, candid, etc.)?

Nature, candid and street. I do love family and weddings but have more of a candid approach to those as well.

How would you like to improve your photography? What are your goals?

I would like to take sharper photographs, play around with shadows more and get better technically.

How did you hear about our group?



I am more of a Pacific Northwester than I realized. I don't wear sandals and socks but I do love photography, the outdoors, recycling and great conversation. I just moved to Michigan in July of 2013 and looking to see more of what this state has!
